I was recently nominated for the Vogue Parody: 73 questions about me by Roger from Mind and Love. I’d never even heard of the Vogue 73 questions about me thing before, so discovering this parody of it was a fun treat. Normally, I have a hard time answering questions about myself, but this was actually quite easy – minus a few of the questions. So sit back and enjoy learning a bit more about me.
Vogue Parody: 73 Questions About Me
What is your favorite Starbucks order?
I’ve never been to Starbucks. So, yeah, feel free to disown me now if you must.
What does your workstation look like right now?
It’s not as much of a mess as it normally is, but slowly creeping towards that point. I think it’s at least partially clean because we recently did a revamp and declutter of our computer room.
All-time favorite food?
Spaghetti! Bonus points if it comes with garlic bread.
Now, why do you have to ask a question like that? It’s impossible to pick just one! Fine, fine, I’ll do it. Okay, my favorite author is Karen Amanda Hooper. She writes fantastic YA fantasy and sci-fi romance Plus she’s just an awesome person all around. She’s an author I can call a friend because I have chatted with her many times, virtually never in real life, but it would be cool to meet her one day.
What do you think of open relationships?
Not for me.
Guilty pleasure treat?
Fig newtons. I know, I’m boring. But, they are hard to find where I live so whenever we can get them they are my guilty pleasure. Oh, also Cuttlefish Snacks. Those might sound gross but trust me they are so good!
Seriously? You want me to pick just one? Well, I can’t. So I’m picking two. Star Wars: A New Hope and Your Name.
What are you doing to me? Stop asking these impossible questions! Watership Down, The Last Unicorn, anything from the Star Wars Expanded Universe (aka Legends), Green Rider, Lost Stars, and Black Beauty just to name a few.
Twitter or Instagram?
Up until recently, I would have said Twitter without any hesitation. However, after the recent update, I’m not so sure. Yes, I still like Twitter better than Instagram, but it’s a closer call now.
Desktop or laptop?
Depends on what I’m using it for. But, I’d say desktop.
Best advice you have ever received?
Um, I have no idea. I’m sure someone at some point gave me some good advice. But since I can’t think of any clearly it didn’t stick.
What project are you working on right now?
Got a few on the go. However, the biggest one is getting the house ready to sell.
Purple! It’s the best okay! But don’t show me that almost pink kind of purple, that is shit. It’s got to be real purple.
Did you get good grades in school?
For the most part yes. Though physics was the bane of my high school learning.
Played any sports?
Yup. Soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, and track and field. But, then I wrecked myself with far too many injuries and now I can’t do shit.
Do you have a degree?
I have a diploma in Funeral Services, does that count?
What is your favorite kind of blog post to do?
What do you like to collect?
Rhinos! I have a slowly growing collection. They are so hard to find but I love all the ones I have.
Describe yourself in three words?
I’m kinda boring.
If you were a rapper, what would your rapper name be?
I have no freaking clue. Moving on!
Who was the last person you DM’d?
I had to look this up, but apparently, it was The Uncorked Librarian.
What is on top of your wishlist right now?
Um, do you mean to buy, do, experience? This is kind of vague. So, I’m just gonna skip this.
How the hell should I know? I don’t do Potter crap.
How many tattoos do you have?
What are you most grateful for this year?
The fact that my parents didn’t come up to visit. Yes, I’m a terrible person, but you know what so are they. That’s why they aren’t allowed to visit anymore.
What is the best thing that has happened to you this month?
Why is this the hardest question to answer? I guess that I finally made some money from decluttering. Okay, that’s super lame. But seriously, I don’t know.
What is the best thing that happened to you today?
I got some chocolate to eat. What can I say, I’m easy to please.
What’s the best thing ever?
Sharks with fricken laser beams attached to their heads!
Fall. It’s still gardening season and stuff is finally harvestable. It’s not too hot or cold. Seriously, it’s a good season.
Favorite fictional animal?
Wolpertinger from World of Warcraft. It’s basically a Jackalope that has wings.
What fictional character do you relate to the most?
Matilda, because she loves books and has shitty parents, just like me! Just wish I had magic like her.
Do you like surprises?
Not particularly. Unless those surprises are chocolate, then I like them.
What is the biggest surprise you have ever had?
Um, I guess when I found out I was pregnant with my son. Wasn’t expecting that!
What surprise made you cry?
I try not to cry, so I have no idea.
What is the best surprise you have ever given anyone?
I am terrible at giving surprises so I have no clue.
Do you like muffins?
Hell to the yes I do! I pretty much live off of them. Most of the recipes I have shared are for muffins, like these oatmeal raisin ones.
Do you cook often?
All of the time.
What is your favorite dessert?
Is there a dessert you don’t like?
Cheesecake. What is up with that stuff? It’s not quite a cake and it’s not quite a pie. It’s just wrong all around.
Cake or pie?
Depends on my mood and what kind of cake or pie you are talking about.
What is your least favorite food?
WAY too many to list. I am a picky eater. Mushrooms top the list though.
What if your favorite condiment?
It’s 4 am on a Saturday night, what would you eat?
I feel like the only correct answer to this is Taco Bell. But if this were to actually happen, and since I don’t have a Taco Bell anywhere near me, it would probably be some kind of crackers.
If you could teach a college class, what would it be called?
Well, I wouldn’t. Because that would involve standing in front of people and talking.
Best animated film?
Stop asking these impossible questions! Okay, no but seriously, it’s got to be Your Name.
What has a guy (or girl) done or said to impress you?
Left me alone while I was reading.

Leave home. I’m antisocial okay!

Dr Pepper! But a close second is Mango Pepsi.
If you could play a historical character, who would it be?
Not a clue. I probably couldn’t do any of them justice anyway.
Kittens or puppies?
Puppies! I don’t do cats.
Favorite sushi roll?
Tough call. Depends on the restaurant, since a lot of them have specialty rolls that can only be found in that one location. Best one I’ve had was the Sarnia roll from Hana Japanese Restaurant in Sarnia, Ontario.
What kind of lipstick do you use?
I don’t wear makeup.
What kind of foundation do you use?
I don’t wear makeup.
Blow-dry or air dry?
Air dry. Too lazy to use a blow dryer. Plus I don’t own one.
Who is your fashion icon?
My husband. I’m always stealing his clothes so clearly, he’s got good tastes. Right?
Favorite Disney character?
Moana. No, wait, Mulan! Belle! But only from the original animated version of Beauty & The Beast. Oh, but there is also Maximus from Tangled. Damnit, don’t make me choose!
What are you doing tomorrow?
Um, I don’t know. Probably something. I lead a boring like okay!

Probably any of the Police Academy movies.
A movie that made you cry?
Black Beauty. Seriously, I tear up at the end every time.
If you could sing a duet with someone, who would it be?
I can’t sing worth shit. But if I had to choose, probably Dolly Parton.

Japan. Also Kenya.
